tribute to food

i am no ruth reichl-nor do i claim to have any skill of the art of food writing. i, myself, admire those amazing efforts of my friends (chi & anna) who can be entertaining, can entertain and have the ability to be ever such the amazing critic of restaurants, cooking and all things edible.

having moved from boston to san antonio over a year ago- we have more recently been in search of more “continental” type foods. while we have enjoyed the smells and tastes of b-b-q, mexican food and every steak house chain imaginable we have been feeling a certain longing for the refined atmosphere of nice & simple.

in comes la frite belgian bistro. the restaurant itself is small, yet full of intimate & quirky charm and a strong following of locals. the menu was limited to a standard few entrees and daily specials on a chalk board. but most of all it fit the need for “non-san antonian” cuisine that one would find on the eastern coast or the small villages of foreign towns.

our search for moules frites – (steamed mussels and thin extra crispy fries) is what brought us to this restaurant in particular. once there we were hooked. we had our choice of curry sauce, white wine, and tomato base sauce. the mussels were small, tasty and plentiful.

one evening down to a dining success. the good thing is we have more to look forward too….
